Fair enough Zz, some may volunteer. But then once you've found the cure, can you force a prisoner to have their brain wiring rearranged? It harkens back to the days of lobotomies. And even if you manage to forcibly change that one aspect, have you created a good citizen? Or have you violated them in a way that's completely unique, and created someone with a major grudge, who may be willing to look past what now feels natural, and go after kids for the pure revenge of it anyhow?
The human brain is a tricky thing, and human behaviour tends to be governed by much more than just the wiring.
While I agree with you that it's still beneficial to look for a fix, I just have little faith that even my kids will see one come about in their life time.
